MS Dhoni registered a world record on his name in Karachi ODI that almost went unnoticed.

Dhoni's match-winning unbeaten 77 (off 56 balls) lifted his career strike-rate (runs per 100 balls) to 108.73, which is the highest for any batsman in the history of ODIs.

Dhoni displaced Pakistan's Shahid Afridi from the top position in the list of batsmen with highest career strike rate.

Interestingly Dhoni is the only one in the following list to also maintain an average of 50-plus.
